Thread: Acting black/Acting white

  1. #1

    Default Acting black/Acting white

    I've just seen a couple of threads in the lounge which have addressed this type of behaviour today and i'm curious to know what the members of this board think about it.

    You see, i was under the impression (the mistaken impression it seems) that human beings were individuals who were capable of making their own choices about what they did with their lives. For example, a white person rapping/playing basketball/breakdancing is exercising his/her freedom of choice to take an interest in that music, sport or dance form and that a black person who sings in a punk band/plays ice hockey/hits a mosh pit was exercising his/her freedom of choice to take an interest in that music, sport or dance form.

    Ok, in plain english, i think that to label a type of behaviour as exclusively white/black/mexican/chinese/yiddish/jewish/blah is fucking retarded and that people in general (especially members of a 'wu tang' board, a group who show love to fans worldwide regardless of ethic or country of origin) shouldn't get caught up in that bullshit. But hey, that's just me.

    When I read the first couple of lines of your post I knew I was going to agree with the rest of it as well. Not a lot of people think outside of this box.

    Thats fucked up^ The only way you could become 'more white everyday' would be to smear pale make up on your skin and spend all your sunlight hours in a cave.

    theres nothing like acting black or what,its all about who you are,what surroundings you grew up around and what state of mind you have in life period..too many ignorant fools these days on that shit,theres is an exception tho,especially if you are lust meng

    At the end of the day we are all having barbecued steak and potatoes with beer and watch football and baseball.

    depends where u are tho, see where im at, u dont really see color no more. we make jokes like yea wusup white boy, or here comes taco bell, and stupid shit like that. but everyone around knows what everyone else been through and what type of life it is. just bein from the neighborhood give u respect, but then ofcourse u got eccentric people, and other loud mother fuckers and thats where u get white black shit.

    there's more to life than what the sorry media potrays. life is all about what's outside your front door, not what's displayed in the telelvision. stereotypes is pure ignorance in which nobody should be discouraged by. Just be you and disregard what anyone else says. That's the essence of freedom. Freedom is never having to say you're sorry and freedom is never having the obligation to give explanations. As long as you're comfortable under your own skin, you should never give 2 flying fucks what the next man thinks.

    The only people I view as trying to "act black" or white etc.. are the ones that try to ridicule their own race for what are percieved as their general interests because in their mind they believe that making fun of the popular activities of their race disassociates them, making them more accepted by black people, white etc...

    example: A white guy makes fun of white people for listening to rock or country and watching programs like friends and sienfeld.

    In the movie White boyz it shows a perfect example of this.

    its also about your surroundings. Me being white and hanging out with all black people, of course some the slang or whatever is going to rub off on you. And you act differently then the straight laced white people.

    While i hang out with all black people, the people at my job are all white(the area im at is like 8 Mile in Detroit. One side of the tracks is the poor area, other side is the rich/upper-class area. I chill/spend most of my time in the poor area, but work in the rich/upper-class area)
